Avaialable in 500ml bottles. A sparkling medium dry cider made from a blend of 11 apples. Previously 6.5%.
NOTE: Not to be confused with the various "Farm Pressed" ciders (which may be semi-sparkling) sold in 1 litre glass flagons or with the still cider sold only on draught or in plastic containers drawn from the barrel.

Made with a blend of at least 11 varieties of vintage cider apples.
The ancient craft of blending vintage Somerset cider apples to produce fine ciders has been handed down through generations. In our orchards we grow 40 varieties oon more than 7,000 apple trees. In the autumn the fruit is harvested, blended and pressed. The juice is then fermented and matured in oak vats.

Bottlr from Tesco, Evesham 29-05-07. Despite the name informing you that it was farm pressed this cider actually had a real farmyardy smell, which was great. Had a lovely taste that for me was a very well balanced medium dry cider nice appley bite, really moreish and very refreshing.
